FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol – a very popular method for uploading and downloading web files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla or CuteFTP, you can connect to the server and view its content in one pane, while the files on your computer will be shown in another pane within the program window. All you will have to do to send files or whole directories in either direction is to select them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. FTP is preferred by many users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to connect to just one single folder on the server, so a web designer, for example, can fulfill their task without being able to view any other content in your website hosting account. What’s more, the availability of different FTP accounts will also enable you to create numerous sites using web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their respective directories on the server.
